Update on Ward Boundaries and the 2018 Municipal Elections
On July 30, 2018, the Province of Ontario introduced Bill 5, the Better Local Government Act, 2018. The Bill received Royal Assent on August 14, 2018 reducing the number of Toronto City wards from 47 to 25 with the boundaries aligning with current federal and provincial electoral ridings. It is anticipated that the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing will be enacting regulations to provide further details to implement the new legislation. These changes will be in place for the October 22, 2018 municipal election.
The City Clerk will provide notice to candidates, electors and the public as it becomes available. Please check the Election Services website regularly for updated information, and visit the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing to obtain additional information for the 2018 municipal election.
The City of Toronto’s 2018 municipal election will be conducted using a new 47 ward boundary model for Toronto from the current 44 ward model. This new 47 ward model will take effect on December 1, 2018, when the new 2018 – 2022 term of City Council begins.
Many City Council ward boundaries have changed as a result of the new model. In some cases, entirely new City Council wards have been created, with only 7 City Council wards’ boundaries remaining the same. Beginning May 1, 2018 the City’s MyVote app will provide Torontonians information about City Council wards based on an individual address and the candidates that will be running in that ward in the 2018 Municipal Election.
